Emerging or established, solo or collaborative, scholastic or self-initiated, the Artists’ Gallery features a new exhibit each month that conveys a sense of home. Selfies with Frida, Tinaco by moonlight, portraits of conjunto musicians who brought their sounds from the fields to the radio – the Weslaco Museum celebrates the people and places and experiences that help to shape our community.
The historical side of the Weslaco Museum holds a number of permanent exhibits that cover our history from the prehistoric age of the dinosaurs through the 20th century, including:
The Weslaco Museum has an extensive collection of artifacts and archives, many of which are on regular display. However, we have such a large collection that we cannot possibly exhibit all of our items at once. Artifacts - objects - are kept in our storage room, cataloged into several groups: kitchen & housewares; cameras; clothing, hats & shoes; military & civic duty; geology; as well as several others. Archives - papers and documents - are kept in our records room. Artifacts and archives are made available for research to those individuals who submit a formal request.
